Stefan Savage
... In 1999, Savage's research team published TCP Congestion Control with a Misbehaving Receiver, which uncovered protocol flaws in the TCP protocol that carries most Internet traffic ... By exploiting these flaws, Savage proposed means for attackers to evade congestion control, allowing attackers to monopolize crowded network connections that would otherwise be shared ... This was the first paper to address congestion control evasion as a vulnerability, rather than as a theoretical design implication ...

... The congestion control in the traditional TCP, is based on the basic idea of AIMD ... phase is adopted exactly as in AIMD, when the protocols are in the congestion avoidance phase ... The congestion window resets and the protocol enters again the slow-start phase ...
... HighSpeed TCP (HSTCP) is a new congestion control algorithm protocol defined in RFC 3649 for TCP ... HSTCP makes minor modifications to standard TCP's congestion control mechanism to overcome this limitation ... When an ACK is received (in congestion avoidance), the window is increased by and when a loss is detected through triple duplicate acknowledgments, the window is decreased by, where w is the ...
Sally Floyd - Biography
... Floyd is best known in the field of congestion control as the inventor of Random Early Detection ("RED") active queue management scheme, thus founding the field of Active Queue Management (AQM) with Van ... for TCP Selective acknowledgement (SACK), Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN), the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) and TCP Friendly Rate Control (TFRC) ...

... The final main aspect of TCP is congestion control ... TCP uses a number of mechanisms to achieve high performance and avoid congestion collapse, where network performance can fall by several orders of magnitude ... These mechanisms control the rate of data entering the network, keeping the data flow below a rate that would trigger collapse ...
